The following weapons are seen in 'Midsomer Murders:

Contents


Revolvers

Webley .38 Mk IV

Webley .38 Mk IV is the murder weapon in "Ring Out Your Dead" (S5E3). One of its rounds was identified as "Enfield .38", but the shape of the front sight reveals this weapon as a Webley.

In "Four Funerals and a Wedding" (S9E5) Tom Barnaby (John Nettles), who is a guest of honor on the fair in Broughton, fires a blank-firing revolver to start the race. This revolver looks like a converted Webley .38 Mk IV with 4" barrel though it differs in several details including the shape of trigger guard.

Webley .455 Mk VI

Webley .455 Mk VI is seen in "Shot at Dawn" (S11E1) both in the flashback scene that takes place during the WW1 and in modern time. The revolver was carried by Lt. Duggie Hammond (Josh Stanley) in 1916, before being preserved in the Hammond family museum and later used to commit murder. The police expert correctly identified it as "a .455 service revolver produced about 1916".

Rifles

FN Trombone

A pump action .22 rifle is used by a trio of yound hoodlums during their night hunt in "The Green Man" (S7E1). Later this weapon is used to kill two of them. Due to the design of the pump, the large screw on the receiver and the shape of the ejection port it can be identified as an FN Trombone. Tom (David Bradley) also holds this gun at the one scene.

In the flashback scene in "A Sacred Trust" (S14E7) that takes place during the war in some African country two white mercenaries are armed with Heckler & Koch G3 assault rifles.

AK-47
